Friend of patient: Has this woman been admitted yet? She’s been here since 6 o’clock.
Triage nurse: She’s not going to hear her name called sitting over here. She needs to be in the waiting room. They’ll call for her when they can take her.
Friend: She’s deaf. Short pause. Nurse: Well either way, she’s not going to hear it. –New York Methodist Hospital, Park Slope Overheard by: connor
